The Mr. Terrific pilot is just one recent example.

Videos already on YouTube can be easily downloaded from there. Although many don't look very good, the transcoding/derivation that is performed upon archive.org uploads degrades them even further.

One difference between here and youtube is that here, as long as an item is up, you can always download the original version, while over there, you can ONLY download one of the derived files.

It matters not at all how much the Archive's transcoding degrades uploads, since one can always download the source file.

Besides, Mr. Panucci, what have you added to IA community besides criticism?

Quigs there's always going to be some critism no matter how you try. I thank you about what you did. I find Youtude hard to get around. Anyway look at the recent post about me.

Hey FF! Leave the nice innocent bystanders out of this.
Very few people use the IA as the vehicle of choice for pirating. Yessir that’s my Baby will soon get tired.
And you actually call attention to items that otherwise would be removed and never noticed by most users. A friend said they didn’t know most of the stuff was here until you called for its deletion.

That doesn't mean that it's OK to leave it. Should we just leave 2012 movies that have been uploaded? Just because they have been captioned in Arabic. What would happen when people find all of these new movies can be downloaded for free. I just had one removed that is now playing in our local theater. Maybe when people see these items being removed they will stop. Like the guy who uploaded every episode of Friends. The only way that we can get items removed is to post. I don't know of any other way to contact the site.
